    I just bought a battery pack that I know will never be able to hold a charge. It wasn't a fortune, but how weird huh ! Bought 'owt odd you'd care to admit to ? If anyone even whispers the B word, I'll ask for the thread to be deleted!!

    I once bought a pair of reversible trousers - I kid you not! Two for the price of one. Horrific garment.

    I wouldn't go as far as to say I bought my first wife, but I'm still paying for her, until next year...

    No, I should get some money back, but I don't see it as anything to celebrate TBH.

    Rusty mustard coloured Austin Marina where you could see the road passing by beneath your feet and where it would stall when you braked due to the demand of the servo. This meant having to pull the choke out to keep the revs high enough so it didn't stall.

    My first car was a little similar, had to yank the steering wheel Sharp right when braking, bloody death trap.

    I once bought a handbag alarm for the wife.
    A transmitter for in the bag and a receiver/alarm for in her pocket.

    Well, that didn't go down too well I can tell you.
    It didn't work either.

    We had a 'family' Capri like that once. We also had a Cortina estate that the steering wheel used to come off in your hands (freaked me Ma out!) and the gearbox was secured with two silk ties.
